In left-meny right-click and choose 'Upload' on desired GAMEFOLDER . Wait until Upload process is complete and your new game should be visible in the left-meny, i.e. Your PS3 hard drive . Doing this you don't have to Copy your Game as it's already on the PS3 Console .​

Put ISO file into NTFS:/PS3ISO/ . 4. Connect external hard drive to PS3 and refresh gamelist in mmCM! PS: If you don't wanna use a NTFS Partition when asked ' Split in 4GB parts? ' choose YES . :)


    Create NTFS Partition

    Info: If you wish to play your oversized PS3 game but don't have a big PS3 HDD you can start them from an NTFS Partition on your external harddrive . Its pretty simple. You need to do three things: download required software, resize your FAT32 external hard drive and create a NTFS partition.​

    Download and Install easeUS Partition Master on your Computer . Close everything else and open downloaded software then click ' Partition Manager ' . In easeUS Partition Master select your hard drive giving it a blue color. Rightclick and choose ' Resize/Move partition '. In the new window on the right side drag the blue ball until it stands ' Unallocated 160,00 GB ' or similar. Click OK . Then click Apply in top right corner . Wait until the resize process is completed .​

    [​IMG]

    After resize process is done . Select and Rightclick the new * Partition and choose ' Create partition ' . In the new window write any Partition label and pick File System : NTFS and cluster size default. Click OK . Then click Apply in top right corner. Wait until the create partition process is completed . Voila! You can now put/download games to your new NTFS partition and FTP them to your PS3 System.​

    Is “the data type is unsupported”?
    There is another way. On Computer make sure in PMS - Transcoding Settings that VLC Video is green (active) . Then on PS3 under ' Music ' locate your PS3 Media Server [.name.] . Press [​IMG] on PS3 Media Server then choose Web - Radio - # --Transcode --# - Spotify - [VLC Web Radio]. Press [​IMG] and enjoy your music on the TV. Sorry for that white Text !​

    Retarded question that I want to take out of my mind. Is this for Cobra users only or for CFW users too?

    Im super-glad you ask that QuestioN!

    This guide is specifically target to firmware : COBRA 7.00 (Mixed w/Rogero 4.46 v1.00)
    - as it's my PS3 cfw and Ive experienced this steps myself with success.

    However... mmCM is kinda the same as normal MultiMAN and I believe some Steps here is very alike to normal MultiMAN . But I can't be sure .

    Otherwise there is an really excellent guide for MultiMAN @ http://gbatemp.net/threads/multiman-beginners-guide.291170/

    Hi, can anyone please help me out, this is driving me MAD. I took the risk to upgrade to this CFW specifically so I can play games form external NTFS drives, but no luck. I spent all day yesterday looking and cannot find an answer.


    How do you actually set it up so you can play ripped games from an external NTFS drive?????????????

    multimanCM can see my drive in the file manager and read the contents, but the ripped games that i put in the drive inside a GAMES directory just don't show in multiman's GAMES section. It just shows my internal games.

    Is this actually poossible to do, and how????

    The structure is USB:/GAMES/BLUSXXXXX/{game files}

    I 'm running Rogero 4.46 with Cobra 7.

    Thanks in advance, I don't get why it's so difficult to find instructions for this - it's basic functionality....

    Elsewhere I read that you can only play games from NTFS by converting them to ISO format and then putting them in a PS3ISO folder, not a GAMES folder.... What's going on here?

    Well, i can describe how I do .

    I use an NTFS drive for all PS3 games larger then 4+ gigbytes. Like Uncharted 3 and God of War : Ascention.
    It's very easy.

    1. Download (get) the PS3 GAME (ps3 game folders) into the NTFS drive. Like NTFS:/Download/
    2. Goto http://www.team-cobra-ode.com/downloads.html - download " Cobra ODE GenPS3iso v2.4 " and unrar
    3. Start genps3iso.exe and locate your PS3 GAME on the NTFS drive
    4. "Select ISO File Destination " - select NTFS:/PS3ISO/ and write the ps3 game title (e.x. Uncharted 3)
    5. "Select IRD File.." - Press Cancel
    6. "Split into 4 GB Parts - Press Cancel again, its not required for NTFS drives.
    7. Wait until the process bar reaches 100% and voila, you got a ps3 game iso in the correct folder.
    6. Connect NTFS drive to PS3 System, Boot up and open mmCM (Multiman) - goto Games and
    search for the ps3 game title. Once found, press X on it to Start the Game.

    Pros with NTFS drives is games like Uncharted 3 and God of War : Ascension doesn't have to
    be moved to your PS3 System , saving you like 50 GB per game!

    Good luck! :)
